Thailand Soi’s – In Color
Weather was not permitting to go out so I took some time to go through some old photos I have. I have been going to Thailand at least twice a year for the last few years and have been going there at least once a year since 2008 and have accumulated a ton of pictures. These are some from the era when I just pointed a camera in the general direction of something I found interesting and pushed the shutter button. All of them were shot on a Canon XSi and either a Canon 50mm 1.8 (later sold) or a Tamron 18-200 3.5-6.3 which is a fantastic all-purpose lens for travel photos (not so much street).
I could not think of a way to describe these photos then I saw this quote online:
“A photograph isn’t necessarily a lie, but nor is it the truth. It’s more of a fleeting, subjective impression. What I most like about photography is the moment that you can’t anticipate: you have to be constantly watching for it, ready to welcome the unexpected.” – Martine Franck
